From the recording How Long It Takes

In cart Not available Out of stock

My song, "How Long It Takes," is a hymn about holding on to hope. It seeks to comfort at a time when patience is in short supply.... as loss, suffering and disruption from the pandemic has reached levels previously unimaginable, in the United States and throughout the world.

How Long It Takes
by Michael Lyon

How long it takes
Drives me crazy
Waiting all this time
Life slips away
Lacking time enough to say goodbye

How long it takes
Getting on with what we all are called to face
Lifting our gaze
As those who've taught us
How to live a life of grace

How long it takes
How long it takes
How long it takes
Can we be patient
After waiting all this time
